Bloodstained Beauty by Ella Fields
Fresh out of college and headed straight for my dream job, I didn’t think things could get any better.
Then I met my dream man.
In an instant, my happy ever after had begun.
The life I’d stumbled into was beautiful, and the man I loved was perfect.
But perfection comes at a cost,
and I’d slumbered through all the alarms.
Then I met my nightmare.
The man whose bright eyes held untamed darkness.
The man who disarmed me with his peculiar behavior.
The man whose cold, merciless hands shook me awake.
In an instant, questions started to dismantle my happy ever after.
But whoever said the truth would set you free was wrong.
It wasn’t going to repair the cracks in my naive heart.
It wasn’t going to caress my face with comforting hands and reassure me it was all just a dream.
No, the truth shoved me down a rabbit hole, and I landed in the lair of a real-life monster.
Wow, just wow. Ella has pretty much rendered me speechless, which is kind of rare. For the sake of keeping everything spoiler free I’m going to keep this review pretty short and sweet.
This whole story caught me off guard, it was completely different than anything that I’ve read by Fields, and I mean that in the best possible way. It was twisty, and suspenseful, there was so much mystery and honest to god I could not put this book down.
I’m going to go ahead and dub this a book rut buster. It’s such a fantastic change of pace from what I usually read. So if you’re craving something different, this is an absolute must read. It sucked me right in and I didn’t see so many things coming. When I’m surprised by things in the plot, that’s always a good thing. All of those surprises kept coming until the very end, it was so awesome.
Do yourself a huge favor, and buy this book. You will not be disappointed in any way.
